Description:

This page provides a set of context-rich physics problems relating to force and circular motion. Each context-rich problem is based on a real-world situation, and includes both information that is relevant to solving the problem and extraneous information. Students must identify the physics concepts necessary to solve each situation. Strategies for problem solving are not explicitly provided. Each problem is formulated so it is too difficult for one student to solve alone, yet not too difficult for a group to master. This resource is based on the research results of the Minnesota Physics Education Research group.
